John was instrumental in starting an A.S.A. Frankfurt group which has held reunions since 2001 in various cities and abroad. The bonds shared Army buddies have grown tighter years after proud service to their country.


Uncle Sam came calling his draft number. He volunteered for three years ("best thing I ever did"). After basic training, he qualified for further schooling, becoming a cryptographer, assigned to (then) Army Security Agency in Frankfurt, Germany with Top Secret clearance throughout the Cold War. He was on duty at the height of Russian aggression when the Berlin Wall was erected in 1961. He was honorably discharged the following year; then alerted to "standby" during the October Cuban Missile Crisis.

John returned home and enrolled at now Eastern KY University to finish his business/marketing degrees, thereby meeting his soulmate, Joie. They married August 16, 1963.
Following graduation, he joined Ashland Oil and Refining Company retiring as Director of Executive Meetings and Events.
He served as member, president and chairman of the board for E.R.C. in Washington, D.C., a world-wide organization focusing on relocation needs of employees, major companies and realtor services.

John was an ordained PCUSA deacon and elder, serving on church boards in Ashland, KY, Columbus, OH and at Second Presbyterian, Lexington, KY.

John and Joie loved sharing their Mallard Point lake home where he was always ready for patio dining, boat cruises and fishing.

There will be a Celebration of Life on August 14th, 11:00 a.m. at Second Presbyterian Church, 460 E. Main, Lexington KY.

We will all miss Mike from our ASA-Frankfurt reunion group.  Just knowing Mike all these years from our ASA days together in Frankfurt to now has been a blessing to all who knew Mike.  God bless Mike’s family and keep Mike smiling down on all of us until we join him for more fun and a cold beverage together. - John Greene
